Just a wonderful experience

5 on March 19, 2018

I and three close friends occupied both suites and the two cottages for an overnight bachelorette getaway. Lisa and Todd were so gracious and welcoming. The accommodations were lovely. No need was overlooked. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. They provided complimentary wine tasting at local wineries that were excellent. Just a perfect time. So sorry we were only able to spend one night. We're making plans to return with our significant others soon.

Innkeeper Response

Beautiful and cozy B&B

5 on March 31, 2016

We absolutely loved our visit to Airwell. We stayed in Powell's cottage and it was comfortable and beautifully renovated. The owners were welcoming and gave us a little tour upon our arrival. The next morning they delivered our breakfast in a cute picnic basket at the exact time that we requested. The food was absolutely delicious! We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend.

Wonderful Stay for 10th Anniversary

5 on March 26, 2016

We were looking for a nearby B&B to get away for our 10th Anniversary and decided to book a night in Nan's Cottage. It was so cozy and comfortable in every way, and the breakfast was delicious. What a treasure!

My Husband and I stayed here the couple of days after our wedding. It was AMAZING! You can really tell that Lisa and Todd love what they do, the cottage was clean, taken care of and beautifully decorated. Lisa met us outside as soon as we arrived, we were staying in Nan's Cottage, the cozy little cottage off the main house. She brought us inside and showed us everything it had to offer (which was a lot in such a tiny place!). All kinds of coffee, fresh cookies and other snacks, an electric fireplace... this place had everything you need to have the perfect little getaway. She told us about the great restaurants in downtown Purcellville (we highly recommend Magnolia's!) and other fun recreational activities in the area. The two mornings we stayed there Lisa brought us (what I'd call gourmet) breakfast. My husband can't stop raving about it! I HIGHLY recommend staying here, even if it's just for one night! We can't wait to come back.

Innkeeper Response

Wonderful Stay!

4.6 on February 16, 2016

My fiancee and I stayed in Powell's Studio this past weekend in the midst of the freeze; the cottage was so comfortable and cozy with the wood-burning stove ablaze! The property was a stone's throw from an ample number of exceptional Loudoun County wineries and vineyards where each one had their own great views. Nearby Purcellville had an abundance of great restaurants for such a quaint town... very relaxing vibe for our Valentine's dinner. Our breakfast was brought to us by our amazing hosts, Todd and Lisa, who were very kind, sweet and informative. Overall, I would come back in a heartbeat and can't imagine how green and beautiful their property is during the spring!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much! So glad you stayed warm and cozy in Powell's Studio and enjoyed Western Loudoun. You two were wonderful guests and make such a great couple!

Wonderful Getaway!

4.2 on February 15, 2016

My hubby and I were able to spend a wonderful Valentine's night away from our busy lives. We stayed in Nan's Cottage which was cozy and exquisitely decorated. We especially enjoyed the fireplace as it was a cold and snowy night. The grounds are beautiful even though we are in the midst of winter. We can't wait to return in the Spring or Summer when we can enjoy the outdoor views and gardens. Lisa, Todd, thank you for your attention to detail. You have created a tranquil and welcoming environment. We'll be back soon!

Innkeeper Response
